  • Etang du Furet provides quality French Carp Fishing in central France, a 4hr 20 drive from the nearest port of Caen. The lake has been around since the 15th century and has a very mature, authentic feel. At 19 acres it provides ample room for up to 10 anglers and holds a wide mixture of carp to over 66lb.

    2016 sees many small nuisance carp still in the water but a netting in November 2016 will remove the small carp and then what a lake this is going to be! For 2017 the lake which already boasts many between 44-66lb with great additional stockings due in November will be the one to watch! The lake definitely has the potential to send you home with aching arms and a very large smile on your face.

    All 9 swims (one being a double) are set along two opposite sides of the lake. All are spacious and offer good features. Several of the swims are set amongst the reeds with wooden pontoons reaching out into the lake. The owner of Etang du Furet, Guillaume Rousselet, is a well-known big fish angler with an impressive capture record. He opened Etang du Furet in 2016 after much success with his first lake Nautica.

    All 9 swims were newly surfaced in 2015 and there is good vehicular access to all swims around the lake to unload your gear (in dry weather). There are reed lined margins all around the narrower end of the lake and closest to swims 1 and 11 is the roadside dam wall where you will find the deepest water.

    Swim 1 is a double swim situated close to the dam wall.

    Swims 2 and 3 are single swims but only 20-30 metres away from each other, making it a good option if you’re looking to stay close together.

    Swims 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11 are all singles.

    For 2016 swims are booked in advance at Etang du Furet so you’ll need to decide which swim you’d like when you book. You can see all the swims marked on the lake map here. If you can’t decide or want to find out which are available a certain week then give us a call – we’ll be happy to help.

    Around the lake for the first 30 to 40 meters the bottom is sand and gravel and after that it becomes softer and silty in places. Depths are on average around 1.3m and range to 2m. However, during hot and dry summer months the lake becomes shallower, ranging from 80cm-1.5m. Bait boats are allowed. There have been no reported issues with poisson chat or crayfish.
